  • Boat noise disrupts orientation behaviour in a coral reef fish. 

    Holles, S; Simpson, SD; Radford, AN; Berten, L; Lecchini, D (Inter Research, 2013-06-27)
    Coral reef fish larvae use sound to find suitable habitat during their vital settlement stage. Yet boat noise, which can cause stress and avoidance behaviour, and may cause masking via reduction of perceptual space, is ...

    MacLean, D; Studholme, DJ (Public Library of Science, 2010-02-15)
    The Type III secretion system (TTSS) is a protein secretion machinery used by certain gram-negative bacterial pathogens of plants and animals to deliver effector molecules to the host and is at the core of the ability to ...
  • Bottom-up effects of a no-take zone on endangered penguin demographics 

    Sherley, Richard Brian; Winker, Henning; Altwegg, Res; van der Lingen, Carl; Votier, SC; Crawford, Robert (Royal Society, 2015-07-08)
    Marine no-take zones can have positive impacts for target species and are increasingly important management tools. However, whether they indirectly benefit higher order predators remains unclear. The endangered African ...
  • A broad distribution of the alternative oxidase in microsporidian parasites 

    Williams, BAP; Elliot, C; Burri, L; Kido, Y; Kita, K; Moore, AL; Keeling, PJ (Public Library of Science, 2010)
    Microsporidia are a group of obligate intracellular parasitic eukaryotes that were considered to be amitochondriate until the recent discovery of highly reduced mitochondrial organelles called mitosomes. Analysis of the ...

    Norville, IH; Harmer, Nicholas; Harding, SV; Fischer, Gunter; Keith, KE; Brown, Katherine A.; Sarkar-Tyson, M; Titball, Richard W. (American Society for Microbiology, 2011-11)
    Macrophage infectivity potentiators (Mips) are a group of virulence factors encoded by pathogenic bacteria such as Legionella, Chlamydia, and Neisseria species. Mips are part of the FK506-binding protein (FKBP) family, ...
  • Burkholderia pseudomallei sequencing identifies genomic clades with distinct recombination, accessory, and epigenetic profiles 

    Nandi, T; Holden, Matthew; Didelot, X; Mehershahi, K; Boddey, J; Beacham, I; Peak, I; Harting, J; Baybayan, P; Guo, Y; Wang, S; How, LC; Sim, B; Essex-Lopresti, AE; Sarkar-Tyson, M; Nelson, M; Smither, S; Ong, C; Aw, LT; Hoon, CH; Michell, S; Studholme, David J.; Titball, Richard W.; Chen, SL; Parkhill, J; Tan, P (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2014-09-18)
    Burkholderia pseudomallei (Bp) is the causative agent of the infectious disease melioidosis. To investigate population diversity, recombination, and horizontal gene transfer in closely related Bp isolates, we performed ...
